Abstract

A comparitive study of the biochemical profile in 15 Indian patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes in the young with retinopathy, and 15 matched patients without vascular disease, was undertaken. There were no significant differences between the lipid, lipoprotein and apoprotein levels between the 2 groups. While the fasting plasma glucose and glycosylated haemoglobin levels were significantly higher in the patients with retinopathy, there were no differences between the groups with regard to their insulin areas, glucose areas and insulinogenic indices. The retinopaths also had significantly lower serum magnesium levels than the patients without detectable retinal vascular disease.
